  1. Always looks very strange when you come across a tidal river to find boats effectively in dry dock isn’t it? Great view too, looks very peaceful.

    • Thanks, it is pretty peaceful! Not so much when you get closer to the town. The boats are like this twice a day in Padstow – the tide goes out so far it looks like you could literally walk across the estuary to Rock (although I suspect you actually couldn’t).

  2. Hi Sarah, I can almost smell the salty sea air looking at this photo. It’s odd to think that in a few hours the boats will be bobbing away on water again.

    • Absolutely! I find the tides so fascinating as they’re changing constantly. I found myself watching them all the time.

  3. Our rivers never look like that here. Mud flats are strangely beautiful

    • It’s the estuary and the tides are pretty extreme. It seems to empty out completely at low tide. I never get bored of watching it!

    • We’ve had a couple of really wet days now! This was taken at low tide a couple of weeks ago.

  5. It is amazing how the landscape changes when the tide is out. I don’t think I have ever been to Padstow – definitely one for the list 🙂

    • Love that! I’ve never heard it before, but it’s the sort of thing I can imagine my Grandad would have said.
